When I woke up yesterday, I could barely breathe. So, Megan never went to the vet. Kelly says he'll take her in on Thursday or Friday, if the rain calms down. It's been POURING with rain for about the last 24 hours, and since there are holes in the carrier (obviously, or she wouldn't be able to breathe in there) and our bus stop is open, it would be next to impossible to avoid her getting soaked while waiting for the bus. If the rain hasn't calmed down by Friday, he'll try again Monday (it's emergency only on weekends). But, if we still have no luck on Monday, I'll ask my Mam and Dad if they'll take her in. She needs to be done by the end of the month or I'll have to pay twice as much and start all her shots over again (plus, take her twice this year instead of once). As it is we got the reminder from the vet in the mail yesterday. I usually get them in before the reminder is sent out, but for some reason I've failed to do so for both girls this year (I got the reminder for Sakura when she was due to be done back in February too).
Anyway, I'm not feeling quite as bad this morning as I was yesterday morning. I can, at least, breathe this morning. I would normally be drinking plenty of herbal tea to shift it, but I don't know enough about the herbs and my pills to know if any of the things in the tea I usually drink when I'm sick would affect the work the pills are doing. We do have some paracetamol in the cupboard, but, again, I don't know how it would affect my pills. I'm even more reluctant to take that because my system isn't used to it. I have to be REALLY bad to take anything like that usually, so I don't want to shock my system and have it mess up the hard work we're putting in with those other pills. The doctor did tell me not to take anything (pain-killer wise) that's too strong, and I'm worried that with my system not being used it, even something as simple as a couple of paracetamol would be considered too strong. And, like I said, I don't know enough about the herbs in my 'special tea' to know that they wouldn't effect the pills. Ah well, I guess I'll just have to suffer. On a brighter note though, I'm getting really good at throwing dirty tissues in to the bin from my chair without missing. Yeah, I know... "Eww!" LOL!
We had a little 'visitor' yesterday. Megan brought a frog home, and Kelly thought he was dead. So, we put him in the bin. Kelly opened the bin to put something in there afterwards, and... Up jumps the frog, who turned out not to be dead after all. I'm glad he was the one who opened the bin and not me. I've got no problem with frogs, and was more than happy to keep Kero and the cats back while Kelly caught the frog and took him outside to safety (we hope). But, I prefer not to have things jump out of bins at me. Especially when I have no idea they're in there in the first place. LOL! Megan didn't bring him back, so we know she hasn't got hold of him, because she ALWAYS brings the things she kills home. We usually get at least one 'gift' a day from Megan. And I don't think Chance caught him, because he's never been very good at catching live prey. He's more of a dustbin raider. His 'gifts' to us usually consist of mouldy meats and stuff like that. As for Sakura... Well, all we can do is hope she hasn't gotten hold of him. She doesn't usually go after frogs and toads (prefers rodents) but, he was in her yard, and she's an EXCELLENT hunter. Unfortunately. Poor little frog. I hope he's OK. I know the cats are only following their natural instincts, but I really wish they'd stop killing all these poor little animals. Even more so, I wish they'd stop bringing them home for me.
So... Today is shopping day. Kelly offered to go for me, because of me being sick. Originally I said "no" and was going to go anyway, but my Mam agreed with Kelly, so I gave in and just asked them to bring me home a baguette. I suppose I could have argued the point, but... Why waste energy I don't have fighting a battle I don't care about winning? LOL!
